Autistic female with anxiety disorder and superior mesenteric artery syndrome

E. Lasat, K. Willems, S. Huysmans

An anxiety disorder can manifest in multiple ways. We saw a 21-year-old woman with an anxiety disorder in combination with superior mesenteric artery syndrome. For we know, this is the first description of this combination. There was also hypersensitivity to certain foods and rigid thinking patterns, and an autism spectrum disorder was discovered later. The recognition of the influence of autism on comorbid disorders is important in order to create an individual adapted treatment protocol.
